About Patchwork Paradise
Oliver and Samuel’s relationship is fairy-tale perfect. They share a gorgeous house in Antwerp, go out with their friends every weekend, and count down the days to their dream wedding. But their happy ending is shattered one late night, and just like that, Ollie is left bereft and alone.

The months that follow are long and dark, but slowly Ollie emerges from his grief. He even braves the waters of online dating, though deep down he doesn’t believe he can find that connection again. He doesn’t think to look for love right in front of him: his bisexual friend Thomas, the gentle giant with a kind heart and sad eyes who’s wanted him all along.

When Thomas suddenly discovers he has a son who needs him, he’s ill prepared. Ollie opens up his house—Sam’s house—and lets them in. Ollie doesn’t know what scares him more: the responsibility of caring for a baby, or the way Thomas is steadily winning his heart. It will take all the courage he has to discover whether or not fairy tales can happen for real.

About Indra Vaughn
After living in Michigan, USA for seven wonderful years, Indra Vaughn returned back to her Belgian roots. There she will continue to consume herbal tea, do yoga wherever the mat fits, and devour books while single parenting a little boy and working as a nurse.

The stories of boys and their unrequited love will no doubt keep finding their way onto the page—and hopefully into readers hands—even if it takes a little more time.

And if she gleefully posts pictures of snow-free streets in winter, you'll have to forgive her. Those Michigan blizzards won't be forgotten in a hurry.

A Q&A with Indra Vaughn
You've just been diagnosed with a rare degenerative disease Writerstopitusitis and the doctors say that you can write ONE more book in your lifetime. What kind of book would you want to make your swan song?

Cruel! Cruel question, for serious… 


First I would sit in a corner and cry for a while. Because as little time to write as I have lately, the thought of not writing again is…scary. To say the least.

Then…I would rewrite the huge fantasy trilogy I have drifting around in the depths of my hard drive. It’s been there for…years. Probably my very first real project that was meant to turn into a book, years before I even dreamed of actually being published. 

It’s epic and has magic and a female heroine and the love interest dies at the end of the third book which… I should probably change. 

But that’s the book I’d like to finish one day. The one I publish under my real name (and will make me famous AHEM).

On the other hand. If I never finish another book and Patchwork Paradise turns out to be my swan song…


I can live with that.
